Pokemon Platinum Cheats Issue (Saved Memory)

Hello. This may seem long and confusing but I will do my best.
I have been using Desmume for a bit and have been playing reandomized pokemon games. I have randomized pokemon platinum and wanted to use XP action replay cheats (I am about half way through and playing with a friend). I have gone through all of the options and walkthroughs to use cheats. In fact I have been able to use cheats in other games. I was having issues because every cheat I used did not work. I went to the forums and no similar issue to my problem. SO I took it upon myself to figure out what was the issue. I downloaded another desmume found in the forums and it works the same exact way. I mimiced every setting exactly as I had my other one, held them side by side and ran the same exact game I was running (the same pokemon platinum I randomized) and it made me start over. I played just far enough to where I could test to see if the xp cheat worked, in which it did. The next thing I did was exported my memory from the same game I am using on the other demume app that was co-running, and imported it into my "new" desmume app hoping it was just the issue with the version of desmume I had (9.11). Come to find out, the cheats do not work on that saved memory file (even though it is the same game being run).
Now that I have explained all of that, long story short, I have deduced my problem is within my memory for the game itself, rather than the game, region, type of desmume, or settings. How do I fix this? I do not have the liberty of starting the game over since I am currently soul-linking with a friend, nor do I want to spend countless hours grinding. Granted, I will, but it takes a very long time. Can anyone help?

Under the "File" Tab is the option to "Import Backup Memory" and "Export Backup Memory".

Don't use that option. Manually manage the .dsv file instead and see if it works better.
In other news, we don't support hacked roms. I can't guarantee that a cheat made for a vanilla rom will work on a hacked rom.
